jurassic park: the only possible wedding theme

Yesterday, Liam got home from Ottawa, where he attended his cousin’s wedding. Being a big fan of weddings and sappiness, the pre-sleep talk rolled around to the details. It apparently had a 50s theme. When he told me this, I realized I’d never put much thought into wedding themes before.

Me: I wonder what my wedding theme would be…. probably Jurassic Park.

Liam: … what?

Me: All the tables could be named after gentle dinosaurs, like the brachiosaurus or the triceratops.

Liam: Sure.

Me: I suppose I could use the other dinosaurs too, but I don’t want people who sit at the velociraptor table to think that I see them as cunningly evil, or the people at the t-rex table to think that I see them as big dumb bullies. *

Liam: True…

Me: Maybe they would feel better if there were t-rex cake toppers.

Yep. This will make them feel better for sure. (Source)

Me: Would a Jurassic Park theme mean that the first dance would have to be “Jurassic Park” by Weird Al?

Liam: That would be weird.

Me: Yeah, I suppose you’re right. It would probably be better to play as the guests are sitting down to their supper.

Liam: …..

Me: Decor would be easy. A few jungle looking trees, and you’re set.

Liam: Does this mean that your grand entrance would be to the main theme of the movie? (This is why I love this man.)

Me: OH MY GOD YES.

Liam: Amanda, that would be ridiculous.

Me: NO! That would be PERFECT. Admit it, you’d have fun at my Jurassic Park wedding.

Liam: I would. But you’re still ridiculous.

*I wouldn’t make anyone sit at the spinosaurus’ table though, becuase that guy was just an outright asshole.

  1. That sounds like a wonderful wedding!!! Steve and I have talked about naming the tables after “girls his best mate has tried to get off with”, but realised we wouldn't have enough guests to make the joke work…

  2. I think a friend of mine would love this theme. She's a big fan of the movie, and she's currently reading the book for the first time. I'm the type of person who really would like a dorky themed wedding. LOL

    That's hilarious Sarah! It would be interesting to see all the guests who didn't quite understand the joke too, I bet. “Why does our table say Catherine…?”

    It sounds awesomely kick-ass! 🙂 I LOVE Jurassic Park! Wish I could've had a themed wedding (I just did the court house thing).

    Also, I love your BG. Penguins are cool. 🙂 I've became obsessed recently.

    I would TOTALLY attend such a wedding. You should make the ring bearer dress up like a dinosaur and roar a lot, and maybe bite a couple of people.

  8. Amanda says:

    That's a great idea! As long as I clarify to the ring bearer that they can only nibble. There's no need for anyone attending my wedding to leave missing chunks of flesh! That would put a damper on the night, I think.

    The only themed wedding I ever went to was a Moulin Rouge one … but your dinosaur theme would lick them hollow!

    Ooh, I just realised how that last bit sounded. How have I never noticed how filthy that expression is?

    Sorry, I'm easily distracted.

    I've never heard that expression before, but just for fun I'm going to try and work it into my every day conversation; it's too hilarious not to!

    I bet the Moulin Rouge wedding was beautiful though!

    I'm being forced to plan my daughter “Sheldon's” wedding. Maybe I'll just eat her and the fiance like a starving Carnivore.

    Your wedding would rock. Love the idea for the theme song! My brother and his wife had a fantastic steampunk wedding a couple years ago. It was the first themed wedding we attended and I LOVED it!

    Just stopped by to say hi and thanks for letting me know that you enjoyed the smoothie! Have a blessed day.

    That ROWR! noise the T-Rex makes would be excellent right after you say I do. And the whole time leading up to that the floor should shudder like he's walking towards you…

    I love this. There would have to be a glass of water somewhere so everyone could see it shake too. With all these suggestions, this really does have the possibility to be the best wedding ever.
